Flow Switch Detects Dry Conditions
Fluid Components International (FCI) introduced the FlexSwitch FLT93 Flow Switch, which detects dry-running conditions. The dual-alarm FLT93 Flow Switch reliably monitors the flow and temperature of liquids, gases, slurries and more. It is ideal for pump wet/dry detection, where sudden, unexpected reductions in media flow rates may leave pumps vulnerable to over-heating conditions, the company reported.
Plate Turns Side Dump Bucket to General Purpose
Rockland Manufacturing Co. unveiled its patent-pending removable dump plate, which allows operators to quickly transform the side dump bucket (SDB) into a general-purpose bucket.
Torque Measuring Device Without Batteries
Rexnord announced Monitorq, a robust and reliable torque measuring device that can be integrated into a drive line using standard power transmission products such as couplings, pulleys and gears. It is comprised of a strain-gauged torque ring and an E-90 Sensor. The E-90 Sensor provides the torque ring with inductive power and receives a radio signal back from it. The radio signal is converted into an output signal proportional to torque that can be directly connected to a control system, or shown on a dedicated screen. www.rexnord.com
Flow Transmitter for Remote, Limited-power Sites
AW-Lake Co. and SignalFire Wireless Telemetry introduced the Intrinsically Safe Wireless Flow Transmitter. Designed for applications with limited power, the transmitter incorporates an internal high capacity lithium battery that powers the passive inductive flow sensor and radio node for years, even in low temperatures. The flow transmitter can be configured for check-in intervals between five seconds to one hour to save battery life.
Absence of Voltage Tester
Panduit Corp. announced the North American release of its VeriSafe, an absence of voltage tester. VeriSafe is designed to minimize risk to electrical hazards by verifying the absence of voltage before equipment is accessed.
